Workers at the retirement hometook the woman to her son's residence on January 4, 2013 after she was expelled because the family was 40,000 euros ($52,000) behind on payments. Finding no one at home, they left her in the emergency room at a local hospital instead. AFP PHOTO MIGUEL MEDINA (Photo credit should read MIGUEL MEDINA/AFP/Getty Images)
